Lately, the traditional jack-o’-lantern is being replaced by more glamorous pumpkin decorating, so I easily and happily embraced this trend.
Few days ago I picked up another big jack-o lantern pumpkin at my nearby grocery store, and this time instead of chopping it up and making it ready for my cakes, pies and soups, I decided to give it a glam makeover.
I wanted to incorporate thumbtacks in my pumpkin decor. I already had a few which were a left over from another project. I also had white and gray spray paint cans, and I thought this color scheme would be a perfect match for the high gloss nickel thumbtacks.
The pumpkin I picked was flat in one side, so this imperfection gave me an inspiration for my design. The whole design idea of my painted jack-o-lantern evolves over the flat side of this pumpkin.
As you can see it was a black glossy paint, another left over can of paint from my porch railing project.
Luckily, it turned better than I expected, even though I was not as precise as I should have been while covering the gray. However, the thumbtacks take away the attention from the sloppy job done with the black, so all in all it turned out nice.
I placed it in an ice bucket, and surrounded it with a hand made wreath of fresh cut snowberries. I like these juicy white pearl like berries, and I wanted to incorporate those in this year’s fall and holiday decor.
Who would think that a pumpkin can add a touch of glam to a place or setting. Well this is a prove that it can, so do you feel like swapping pumpkin orange for another color this fall?
If so then try this glamorous pumpkin makeover.
Thank you for reading.
